The South Korean and US fleets have conduct anti-submarine exercises on the last day of their four-day joint military drills, code named Invincible Spirit.

The drills to defeat a submarine intruding into waters off the Korean Peninsula involved naval guns and artillery. Also on Tuesday, a formation of fighter jets staged live attacks in the coastal city of Gangneung, about 230 kilometers from Seoul.

The four-day naval and air exercises involved 20 ships and submarines, 200 aircraft and about 8,000 US and South Korean sailors.

Seoul and Washington are expected to stage another round in September in waters off the west coast of the Peninsula.
